to be found in life
what is the crowning
glory of all life as

of how we can
lose everything for which we
worked so hard
if we l let little things
eat us alive like a crumb
on a hill of fire ants?

brightly soaked by
hours of sunshine

that we were there
letting the current driven
waves crash against
the golden layers of
sand we stroll across
tingling our toes.

Are we really at
our best in that
paradise be it there
or a cabin in the
wood-covered mountains
or perhaps are we
making life better
providing charitable relief
to another toiling
soul who has live even
